Father inks Son…

Yesterday was a special Father/Son day at the studio as Lee opened up on his studio on a Wednesday to work on his son. His son has an interest in Japanese masks and Lee worked up something pretty different along that style of work. I had regular updates from the studio and enjoyed seeing how this skull mask tattoo came together. What do you think?

PS – I did wonder if, when his mates admire his tattoo, my stepson says proudly “my daddy did it!” 😄

Another mighty fine swap…

Lee is pretty happy after undertaking another mighty fine swap with our customer from ‘Boxed Blues.’ Joe had another dripping skull tattoo and Lee received a fab stomp box and microphone in return! (I just love that retro telephone mic). Once again it really is Pembroke currency at its very best!

Coffee Dregs Art…

When you are married to an artist I guess you shouldn’t really be surprised to find the dregs from the cafetière in the sink looking like this huh?

Handy Skull …

Now as you know Lee is an old punk and his style and taste lean well away from the mainstream. So he just loves a day when he is able to create a tattoo that meets his full approval of cool. He absolutely loved creating this very unique and totally different hand skull tattoo … what do you think?

Dying Romantic …

Lee recently completed this amazing tattoo on one of our regular customers.  The customer is also an artist currently creating some wonderful pottery work, and Lee always enjoys their  arty farty chats whilst he works. The customer drew up this beautiful design himself and Lee brought it to life on the skin. 

What do you think?

Pencil not stencil…

Customers usually bring Lee a photo of their tattoo request. Lee diligently reproduces their request just beautifully and the customer walks away happy that their requirement has been well met.  However, some of Lee’s regulars totally trust him to have absolute free reign. This is exactly what happened with one of our long standing customers who told Lee he wanted a skull and rose. Lee just drew it on to him free-hand. Great results for that extra trust in your artist ❤️

A proper upgrade …

A lovely customer came in wanting something wonderful done to a tattoo started by another artist. Quite often Lee will prefer not to do this as his  creativity is constrained by the previous work but on the flip side he just loves an artistic challenge!

 I think he did a fabulous upgrade on this one and we had a very happy customer at Foreverart Pembroke ❤️
